Yeah...the "pet" that is untrainable. My kitties listen AND remember better than the hubby. I love my DH to the max, but he just can't be trained!
He does love my kitties and looks out for them, AND spoils them, even if he accuses me of spoiling them! After 23 years, if all I can complain about is that he doesn't remember everything we talked about, like LAST NIGHT, it's not so bad. I wouldn't trade him for anything less than Johnny Depp!

I dont really have any pet peeves with my SO except that when he shaves me leaves the whole sink full of whiskers and doesnt rinse it out, its like COME ON you dont see that? LOL

My pet peeves in general are:

1) People who bully
2) People who cant take simple direction
3) People who discriminate against races and homosexuals
4) When people are so consumed with their looks and look FAKE.
5) People pleasers
6) Close minded people

I have more but I cant think of any right now LOL

OMG YAY IM ADULT CAT NOW! LOL I just realized.

I got another one.... This is a huge one

I have a hard time hearing and my bf knows this, but he insists on mumbling so quiet that only he can hear and then when I ask him what he said he gets pissed and asks me if I am deaf! Apparently he doesn't think he mumbles but he does it to the extreme and my family tells him that. I hate it when we are at the grocery store and he is asking me something in mumbles, while walking in front of me... Hello I cant hear you when you are mumbling in a different direction... It drives me flipping crazy and is making me mad just talking about it!

Perhaps it's because it's mostly women here? I KNOW I have plenty of habits that probably big him but like someone else said... we usually laugh it off. It's all about picking the battles... sure, some things can be annoying but are they worth getting stressed out and upset over? For us most aren't and those that are get talked out right away.

The worst thing he really does is wait til I am watching something to wash the dishes and then I can't hear hear the TV but seen as I made the mess I cope ok

For the most part, J is very considerate and attentive, and I'm very much in love with him. However, if the following pet peeves were to disappear entirely, he would be the perfect man:

1) When he washes the dishes (which I probably shouldn't even complain about, because he does wash the dishes ...), he leaves grime encrusted on whatever he's washing. It's not that he's doing it deliberately in the hopes that I'll take over all dish-washing duties (he does the dishes more frequently than I do and never complains about it); he just doesn't notice the food still stuck to whatever he's washing -- it's like it doesn't exist for him. This inattention to detail is why I'm the one who cleans the apartment, because I'd rather just to do it myself than re-do everything he's done. And when he's done washing the dishes, he dumps the wet dishcloth in the bottom of the sink, where it doesn't dry and starts to smell.

2) He occasionally works overtime, which drives me nuts because it means getting up at 4:30 am instead of 5:30 am (which, let's face it, is more than early enough!). That wouldn't bother me so much if he would be willing to go to bed earlier the night before to compensate for the missing sleep, but he's not. I can't fall asleep without him (unless I know he won't be there at all), so if he's staying up, so am I. It doesn't matter how often I mention this, nor does it seem to matter that I am one of those people who cannot function on less than eight full hours of sleep. I'd make him sleep on the couch if I thought it would make any difference.

3) He doesn't like change. It took me two years to convince him we needed to move out of our last home, which we shared with another couple; I can't even begin to fathom how long it's going to take before I can convince him we need to buy our own home.

4) It's been said before: whiskers in the sink. I'd shave my legs and leave that mess in the sink for him to find, but he probably wouldn't even notice. And if he did notice it, he wouldn't care. *sigh*

5) His weight loss. Okay, I'm very, very proud of how successful he's been on Weight Watchers: he's lost 95 lbs since the middle of October 2006, and that really is an accomplishment. But, okay, he's done now, he's at goal weight. He can stop losing now, please. And I'd like to catch up!

One of the "danger" things is:

Men don't want the woman they married to change and
Women want the man they married to change!

Ohhhh this is my type of post..LOL..Dave has sooo many peevish things I swear he does just because it irritates me...
*Whiskers in the sink..* (must be a common male issue)
*He works night shift which is ok..I dont mind HOWEVER I only really get to see him 2 days outta the week so Id like for him to get up earlier than 15 minutes before he leaves for work and spend time with me and the girls. But boy o boy someone is NOT an afternoon person*
*He never takes dishes out of his side of the bed. I constantly have to go thru his side to get cups and plates because he eats before he goes to bed and just leaves everything sitting there..We have a dining room table for a reason!!!!*
*He takes longer than me to get ready to go somewhere. We dont go out very often, maybe once a month. So when its time to go I want to go not stand around for half n hour watching him play with his hair or run around in his undies trying to find something to wear. Its gotten to the point where when hes showering I pick out his clothes get his trimmer and toothbrush ready so that way all hes gotta do is dry off get dressed and stand still so I can do his hair right the first time.*
*Lastly when we argue (which we like to do alot) he constantly interrupts me. OMG just let me finish my point and then start talking...But heaven forbid I interrupt him when he sounds like a boob*

My Father told me when I was very young that everyone on earth has flaws. You will never find someone flawless, but when choosing a life mate ask yourself, can I be happy living with that person for the rest of my life completely accepting that person, with their flaws, making no changes, for the rest of my life?

Jim has many flaws and depending on which flaw I have just had to deal with will affect my answer here.

I think its about how you deal with the flaws. Sometimes I deal really well with Jim's flaws and sometimes, I dont. And my flaws are just perfect

But humor helps us A LOT!!!

There have been numerous issues handled because we simply busted out laughing about them.

LMAO...Dave likes to let Bruno upstairs when he gets home from work and if I dont have the bedroom door closed (which I didnt two nights ago) I get a flying drool slinging basset jumping on me licking me and basically making me wake up soooooo rudely that Im flying downstairs ready to rip into Dave. Since then now he checks the bedroom first before he lets the dog out!!! Thankfully my cats are too lazy to fall for the kitty toy attack thing

I hope the second part isn't true for most. I love Matt for who he is and I would NEVER want him to change for me. Of course, that hasn't stopped me from trying to persuade him to quit smoking... which he has now... on his own.

Interesting... have you pointed this out to him. When Matt started doing dishes I guess he didn't realize that plates and things had bottoms that got dirty too. He'd only wash the tops till I informed him that "washing dishes" meant washing the whole dish and not just the top or inside.

This is why no one is allowed to stack dishes when I am cleaning them. LoL

Don't get me started

My DH has no sense of Humor hes like clueless I don't know how we got together I am more then half nutts myself. I actually embarrass him

He will not Ague EVER ...I miss that

I can not stand for anyone to roll there eyes at me Although I do it often but not in a manner that I feel other people do ..I'm an exception

I can't stand it when he snores.. I want to smother him ...Just for a minute

I hate rude people epically when driving. I will not let anyone pass me if the get on my bumper I will speed up or slow down, not to be rude of course just to prove a point

I hate it when people will not move in the store, I will just stand there and look at them... I'm stubborn

I hate waiting for anything repair people, delivery and so on ..

I could go on and one but there's not enough space so I will quit

Yeah, I've pointed it out to him, on numerous occasions. And every time, he seems surprised to notice that there is, in fact, more gunk on the dishes. He really, really doesn't notice that it's there. (I don't know, do food particles have to be a certain size before guys can notice them? Is that it?)

Hmmm, maybe he just needs a better optometrist ...

Oh, and yeah -- don't even get me started on the whole "outside, top and bottom" of dishes. He figures, so long as the dishes are clean where the food touches them, they're clean. Never mind that the outside has caked-on goo or that the handle is sticky. It's clean, so far as he's concerned.

Boys can be icky sometimes.
post #49 of 53
Mines weird...
I get stressed when I'm running late (i'm late ALOT) and whenever i'm with him then he always wants to hug me and it drives me crazy! I appreciate that he wants to calm me down, but when all i'm running on is adrenaline, and i can't think about anything but the next 20mins a hug can Really bug me.
Plus he Never has keys. I've spent so much time waiting on his doorstep for his to run over to his cousins house to get the spare set. Is it normal for an independant 18yr old to not carry keys with them??

I know this is so petty, but he burns my hot dogs. I mean to the point where they are black. It is really the only thing we argue about, dumb I know. We have come to an agreement that he waits fr 10 minutes after he puts his hot dogs on to burn Other than that I think he's perfect.

I read this wrong at first, and thought you said he was good in the sack. Maybe I need to get my eyes checked. And yes he makes really good STEAK.

you guys with the dishwashing peeves REALLY need a dishwasher. my hubby and i both hate to do the dishes, and don't like each others methods. we've had an apartment with a dishwasher for 3 yrs now...no more disagreements with the dishes. it's great.
